Meet the Team
Famous for his ability to find high quality seafood, long-time local Myrtle Beach fisherman Ted Hammerman started in the Murrells Inlet fishing scene and quickly grew a booming fish market and restaurant with his daughter Sheina Hammerman.
The story of Mr. Fish starts with Ted Hammerman whose history of success was influenced by his entrepreneurial family and continued by his business savvy daughter, Sheina Hammerman. Ted lived in a number of cities including Fort Jackson after being drafted, spent many years in construction even owning his own construction business, and obtained his Bachelors of Arts in English and Theater from the University of South Carolina before moving back to Myrtle Beach where he set up shop in Murrells Inlet building doors for fishing nets and started a career as an inventive fisherman that would go on to build and sell fishing gear and fish wholesale to larger companies.
Sheina Hammerman attended the prestigious Johnson & Wales University’s culinary program and, upon graduating, with her father found the perfect space to start Sheina’s event catering business and would include the Mr. Fish seafood restaurant. They soon expanded into the Mr Fish seafood market next door and the popularity grew significantly warranting another expansion only four years later! Today, the Mr. Fish seafood restaurant and Mr. Fish seafood market are popular among locals and tourists as their favorite spots to enjoy delicious food and pick up fresh, local seafood in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!
